I bought my 5DmkII in January, and in April the display broke down
Warranty repair took a very long time (the Dutch contractor for Canon repairs went bankrupt), in the end I was offered a new camera.
So, in September I got a new 5DmkII.
The First time I shot with it I thought “Huh, this one sounds very different from my first one”
Then I thought “Is my memory playing games with me or is this real?”
Now I know, the First I had was a “click”, and the new one is a “sproingy”.
I must confess that I find it hard to get used to the “sproingy”.
It sounds less solid, and definitely cheap. I also think that I feel more shutter vibration in the body. I guess time will tell if it will influence the durability of the camera.
Is there anybody who knows what was changed? Did Canon change factory location, used an other shutter or lube or what?
